2015 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2015 Cadillac CTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Cadillac CTS. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Impala and the Cadillac CTS in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Impala as you will with the Cadillac CTS, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Impala is clearly a better financial choice over the Cadillac CTS. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Impala carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Cadillac CTS.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Impala is a little wider than the Cadillac CTS, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Impala, which is slightly longer than the Cadillac CTS.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Impala has much less torque than the Cadillac CTS, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Impala has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala is significantly less powerful than the Cadillac CTS. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Impala and the Cadillac CTS. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Impala will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Cadillac CTS.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Impala is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Cadillac CTS.
